This report shows significant increases in the number of people receiving treatment for HIV, diagnosis and treatment for tuberculosis (TB) and having an insecticide treated net to prevent malaria. The Global Fund Results Report 2017, with cumulative results through the end of 2016, shows a decline of one-third in the number of people dying from AIDS, TB and malaria in the countries where the Global Fund invests.
